Based on sports handicapping news, Ibrahimovic said he suffered from undercover racism while playing in Sweden due to his Bosnian roots. His last name didn’t sound Swedish. He added that if his surname were Svenson or Andersson, the media would defend him even he robbed a bank.
On the other hand, James said he would not shut his mouth when things are wrong. He would preach about equality and his people. According to Price Per Head Sportsbook sources, James is vocal about social injustice, systematic voter suppression, and racism.
James said he wants to be the voice of those who can’t speak for themselves. Also, he would use his platform to shed light on what’s going on across the globe. Thus, James would not just stick to sports. He said that he understands how powerful his voice is.
James praised former WNBA player Renee Montgomery. She became a part-owner of the Atlanta Dream after the WNBA put pressure on former Senator Kelly Loeffler to sell her shares of the team. Loeffler opposed players’ racial justice programs last summer.
James called Montgomery a beautiful black woman. Also, James credited Celtics Jaylen Brown, New Orleans Saints’ Alvin Kamara, and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes for their commitment to fighting social justice issues.
